About UniLodge Shafston

UniLodge Shafston is a student housing in Brisbane that offers studios and different studio apartments. All units feature a kitchen, tables and chairs, a bathroom, a couch, a TV, and a chair; bedrooms with a bed; a wardrobe; and shelving. 

The building features various amenities and services. They include Wi-Fi, cycle storage, common areas, a games lounge, parking, a gym, a pool, and laundry. Other services include an outdoor terrace, an on-site staff, security, and vending machines.

The third-most populous city in Australia, Brisbane, is also the state capital and largest city of Queensland. It is a multi-cultural metropolis that serves as the Asia-Pacific region's hub for innovation and cutting-edge research. It's a popular choice among international students.

The residence is located on Castlebar Street, just a short drive from the city’s centre. It is surrounded by a plethora of exciting and interesting locations, including eatery spots, entertainment venues, and other places of interest. If you’d like to have a taste of traditional Australian food, there’s no better place to go than Lamberts Restaurant; it makes the best Australian food in the neighbourhood! If you’re craving a mouth-watering pizza, Olive and Angelo is a few minutes away from the residence, and it serves classic Italian fare, including pasta and pizza, in a casual venue. The Prawnster is another nearby eatery offering delicious seafood in an airy space.

When you need to do some grocery shopping, Seasons IGA East Brisbane supermarket is just around the corner, and it has a variety of products at discounted prices to cater to your needs. Before you head off for your busy day on campus, we suggest you go for a refreshing morning walk at Mowbray Park, where you can enjoy the lovely scenery and greenery. Over the weekend, you may enjoy a night out with your friends and watch the latest box office movies at the Cineplex South Bank movie theatre. You may also choose to go on shopping spree at the QueensPlaza shopping centre, where you’ll find lots of shops, stores, and boutiques. Another thing you can do during the weekend is go on an adventure with Story Bridge Adventure Climb, where you can hike with a large group on the top of Brisbane's renowned cantilever bridge while wearing safety belts.

For the price you pay and the view you get it’s definitely worth it. The lovely ladies in reception always go above and beyond for me. They reply efficiently and are just so friendly. It makes the living experience here that bit more enjoyable. :)
